What I am about to write is probably one of the most emotionally driven posts ever. It’s because of the feedback on this subject, and how my personal Facebook became a war zone about it. It wasn’t originally, but when you’re dealing with someone who is a bully, it makes things quite more complicated. I don’t expect a lot of people to to take my side on this. What I do expect is people to simply understand my point, is all. And what am I talking about? This notion of 28 days of black cosplay.

I’ll have to say about a week and a half ago could be considered a low point in my life in my year. During that week, I had to deal with my Grandmother giving me grief about my life, the anniversary of my mother’s passing, and people trying to get me to goto a convention that my ex-girlfriend goes too, and usually staffs. And during that, I had a meltdown with a couple of people on twitter. I’m not excusing myself for what I did, nor am I making excuses for it. I own up to my tweets. It was just a bad day altogether.

Only because I may lose friends over this. I don’t want to, I truly don’t. But I suppose that if I do, they really weren’t my friends in the first place… Well I want to talk about the terrible incident at UCSB on Saturday. But what I feel that makes my post different is that I want to talk about how it makes me feel. I’ve read what others have said and how others should be.

Discussions, conversations, arguments, debates will mostly have two sides to it. It’s not often that one side will agree with the other. We all have our reasons for believing and/or standing behind a statement. At one time, I would stand behind my point and not give up until that person would concede, because I would verbally berate my view is the correct one. In my field of work, you really can’t do that. You have to see what you’re looking at, be reasonable, understand the points and then decide if you agree or not. Key word being understand. I think that’s something a lot of people forgotten about.
